Reena Jacobs is just your typical writer who loves to see her words in print. As an avid reader, she’s known to hoard books and begs her husband regularly for “just one more purchase.” Her home life is filled with days chasing her preschooler and nights harassing her husband. Between it all, she squeezes in time for writing and growling at the dog.

Novel Review: Thumped by Megan McCafferty

I hopped right into Thumped after reading Bumped. I was happy to see my local library had a digital copy, which I’m finding very convenient these days… and easy on the pocketbook. Before I get into the review, the blurb as always

As a freshman in college, Alex looks forward to fun times with her best friend. When Seth decides cycling through girlfriends is the way to fit in with the straight crowd, Alex must make a choice: watch Seth give his affections to another while her heart breaks or come clean with her feelings and risk losing his friendship forever. I Loved You First is a new adult love story told through the eyes of an African-American/Caucasian student who takes a journey of self-discovery while watching her best friend come to terms with his sexuality.

“V rolled the Aquafina bottle between his palms. "How long have you wanted to ask me the question? About the gay thing."
"For a while."
"Afraid of what I'd say?"
"Nope, because it doesn't matter to me one way or the other. I'm tight with you whether you like males or females or both."
V looked into his best friend's eyes and realized… yeah, Butch wasn't going to judge him. They were cool no matter what.
With a curse, V rubbed the center of his chest and blinked. He never cried but he felt as if he could at this moment.”

Reena Jacobs He's wearing enough clothes to do a really sexy strip dance. And since it summer, hot, and humid, I know he'd have to take it off to get comfortable.

Looks like we're throwing the same book on our to-read pile. Maybe we'll end up encouraging one another to actually get through the stack. :)

Reena Jacobs Anna and the French Kiss sounds familiar. I'll have to see what that's all about. :) Thanks, Michelle.


♥Rachel♥ Hi Reena. Thanks for the friend invite. I look forward to chatting books with you. :)


Michelle [Helen Geek] Reena - thanks for the friend-vite. More like "What a Boy Wants". I actually haven't read this one yet. It keeps getting bumped in my pile. That being said, it is YA, and contemp to boot, so my rec would be to read:
That Boy
That Wedding
Anna and the French Kiss
Lola and the Boy Next Door

I read all these and loved them. A GR friend of mine has read these too, along with "What a Boy Wants" and has had similar thoughts and ratings to mine. So, good luck!!

Glad we got the opportunity to hook up. :) I like your selection of books. Most of them are outside of the genres I typically read, which is great. I tend to get hooked on one genre for awhile before I get bored and decide to move on to another. Now I know who to go to for something different.


If you haven't picked up Shadow Cat, you're welcome to a free copy at Amazon. http://www.amazon.com/Shadow-Cat-Stri...

You are correct. :) I'm trying to gain a better understanding on suspense and thriller. I'm just beginning to understand the difference between thriller and horror.
